Something Blue: Bouquet

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a six pence in her shoe. Almost all brides have heard this old Victorian good luck wedding custom and most brides try to incorporate it into their wedding day. There are a lot of ideas floating around as to why blue was integrated into this rhyme but I like the thought, that in ancient times the color blue was a sign of faithfulness and loyalty; two traits I believe a bride wants to exude on her wedding day. Here is an idea on how to incorporate this lucky color in your wedding:
Bouquet: Some of my favorite flowers for wedding bouquets (and in general) are hydrangeas, especially when they're blue! Granted as this touch of blue is a little more front and center you'll want to make sure that it complements the rest of your color palette. To add even more blue as your florist to wrap a blue ribbon around the stem of your bouquet.
